SECT’S NEW ALBUM, NO CURE FOR DEATH IS RELEASED TODAY VIA SOUTHERN LORD
SECT release their second album, No Cure For Death today via Southern Lord. Fuelled by socio-political vitriol, for SECT the purpose of hardcore as they know it, is to convey an urgency that transcends age, credentials or scene politics, to convert desperation into real talk and action.
About the album, vocalist Chris Colohan explains, “For a band of people spread so far and wide, No Cure For Death is the record we got to make once we were really rolling – after we’d played a year of shows together, had dusted SECT off and put in the time on stage and on the road to take better aim at both the sounds and messages we wanted to make.”
The vegan straight edge collective unites vocalist Chris Colohan (Cursed, Burning Love, Left For Dead), guitarists James Chang (Catharsis, Undying) and Scott Crouse (Earth Crisis, The Path Of Resistance), bassist Steve Hart (Day Of Suffering), and drummer Andy Hurley (Racetraitor, The Damned Things).
No Cure For Death was recorded with Kurt Ballou at God City studios, mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music. Footage of the recording sessions was recently shared, and can be viewed here.

“The metallic hardcore is filthy and sinister, laden with a guitar tone resembling a power tool and with feedback akin to the noise one would make scraping on steel.” – EXCLAIM!
“The video is an all-action affair that captures the intensity of both the band’s performance style and the song at hand… the song sounds both massive and mean.” – NO ECHO
“The album was produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, so you should know what it’s going to sound like already – total fucking Armageddon.” – METAL INJECTION
“This is an absolute beast of an album. It is a punishing, breathless 17 minute rager that doesn’t give the listener time to pause. There is absolutely no fat on the bone here; the band have pared these songs back to a lean, powerful set that goes for the jugular and doesn’t let go until the screaming stops and the feedback fades.” – ECHOES AND DUST
